That's a cool looking stove, but it looks like it could be dangerous on a boat. It's probably meant for burning charcoal, coal, or chunks of wood.

If it's got a burner and pipe then it's gas (might have been converted to gas)
Here's the operating manual:

There's also some posts here about them, not sure if you searched the forums.

I googled some more for ya... even found your post on another site. I'm guessing it's missing parts. If you have your heart set on using it, you'll need to add a regulator on the outside and a burner on the inside (to go gas). Or use it with coal/wood as is.

Personally I'd save the weight and the trouble and go with a smaller newer stove. Doesn't have to be a spendy stainless one, even a portable coleman would work. If you want it in the boat for looks/nostalgia, and you're handy, I'd buy a coleman portable stove, gut it, and put the parts in this thing. Plum it so the burners are up top, and figure out a way to mount the knobs. It would be more efficient that way.

Shipmate has been out of business for some time. The old Shipmate factory is now a metals recycling center.

The (probable) good news is that most of the parts, etc. for these various Shipmate stoves can be found at: Sailorman New & Used Marine: The World's Largest and Most Unique New & Used Marine Emporium

Shipmate Skippy Stoves Available Again

Looks like a fairly well done casting that sits down in where the old ash grate would have sat. Can you see if there are any weld beads on the gas block piece? If you need the grate that sits down in where the current gas rig goes, I can help.....

I am making cast iron Skippy's again in both oval and rectangular tops with the standard model having a stainless searail and the Bronze model having bronze feet, searail and a Shipmate Logo on the front of the stove...very handsome. We also have the larger Model 211's (with the oven) almost done....Should be ready in 3-5 weeks after nearly 4 years in the works. Porcelain colors optional with Blue, Green, Black, Flat Black and Red. All work, castings & assembly done here in the ole U-S of A. Website done but waiting to be launched along with some sassy boat mag advertising this holiday season. Drop me a line if interested....Sean Tracy
